- Other Information
Prior to joining Birketts, Daniel worked at a local authority shared legal service (where he also completed his training contract). Daniel therefore has extensive experience of acting on behalf of local authorities; particularly in commercial property matters. He has experience in across a wide range of commercial property work on behalf of local authority clients including: freehold sale and acquisition; commercial landlord and tenant work (new leases, surrenders, assignments/sub-letting, variations, Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 matters etc); overage covenants, and; general advice on rights, restrictions and covenants (both registered and unregistered land). As a result, Daniel understands those statutory and democratic duties and obligations that distinguish public sector land transactions from private sector land transactions. He also has experience of dealing with property matters involving charity legislation as well as the ‘Right to Buy’ under the Housing Act 1985.
At Birketts, Daniel undertakes a broad range commercial property work for both local authorities as well as private companies and individuals. This includes: strategic land matters (both landowner and developer work); general commercial property conveyancing (both buying and selling); general commercial leasehold work (both landlord and tenant); and, corporate support work.
Daniel studied law at Lancaster University and then went on to complete the Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in Chester. In his spare time, Daniel enjoys reading and takes part in the occasional local athletic event.
